Chain Reaction..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews







Chain Reaction is a pastel on Sennelier paper.
Image size is 15.5" x 19.5" unframed


$450 plus S/H


I did quite a lot of reconstruction on the links from my initial drawing as in my photo it was not clear enough to follow. I made the water up and the wharf, both of which were not visible in my photo, which incidentally was a chain I saw on Maui in the Maalaea Harbor.


I also turned this one every which way during my process, and finally decided to make it a horizontal format.

Flash Dance..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews




Believe it or not this one used to be irises. I just labored so long on trying to make them work that I decided to throw in the proverbial towel and start all over.

The surface is a Richeson sanded panel and they take a LOT of torture. LOL.

I held it under a garden hose , blasting most of the iris image away, then let the panel dry.

I used some of the ghost image underneath to allow the fish to evolve. It was tricky, but then I love to complicate things, ha!

I really like the design of this one, and I certainly prefer it to my iris attempt. I hope you like it.

Of Corpus Contrasts..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews


 I just finished this one in my cozy studio while the sleet falls outside and the temperatures drop.. 

Brr... it's cold today. A great day to be painting!

This one is on an Ampersand Pastelboard. 

I usually stay away from this kind of support as I prefer one with more 'tooth' to it for my pastels. However, this one worked pretty well for me, so I am glad I persevered.

Tidepool Interrupted..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews



I love to watch water move, whether it's a waterfall,  a pond or pool with a slight rippling effect. It's all mesmerizing to me and very peaceful.

I tried to capture that feeling with this one. That action of looking down into a rock pool when a ripple breaks the surface with such wonderful patterns. 

I hope you like this one, it was a fun one to paint.

This image is a pastel (unframed ) on Sennelier sanded paper.

Like Music Adrift..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews











Hi again, I am finally able to get back to a post on this blog. My hubby has been in hospital yet again, and my life is just very scattered right now, so no time for painting. Grrr!

I started this one about three days ago. It is a 19.5" x 25.5" pastel on red Sennelier sanded paper (unframed). This one was cathartic for me, with all the stress over the last few months. Just to paint again has been a real treat!

I love to paint water in any form as you may realize, and this rock pool (without the shells) was on Maui . I again 'sparked up my colors using Photoshop on my photo. 
I used my own shell collection to pop in a little more interest. 

I hope you like it. It was a fun image to paint.

$450 plus S/H
